It's Time to Talk About Jared Leto's Facial Hair: Full Beard or Sexy Stubble?

02/11/2014 at 12:28 PM ET

Jared Leto beardWireImage (2) editors have a collective crush on Jared Leto. We love his hair, his style, even the way he flips pancakes. And we really hope he continues to get nominated for major awards every year, so we can closely monitor his every move — like his latest decision to trim down his beard.

The actor has been sporting full facial hair on the red carpet since January, but Monday he debuted a new grooming pattern, stepping out with just a shadow of stubble. “I cut off my beard!” the Dallas Buyers Club star captioned the below shot on Instagram.

Okay, so he’s not completely clean-shaven, but we think the Oscar nominee’s close trim shows off his bone structure better. And the subtle stubble is way hotter than the bare-face look he had going on back in 2006 (in our opinion anyway). What do you think of the actor’s new facial hair? Do you miss his full beard? Share your thoughts below!

I think his face would look best with short hair and clean face so that nothing detracts from those huge blue eyes and his cheeckbones would stand out more not being covered by hair.

@notpetA….who the heck is Jordan?

denise on

shorter hair with sexy stubble.

He got rid of the beard, besides that I don’t see anything “new”.

I think he’s one of the most effortlessly sexy men alive, and part of that sex appeal is his talent.

The ombre hair is just not working for me. Usually I like longer hair on men, but his is not that attractive, it is getting a bit greasy. Shaving the beard to a more “80″s stubble” is not that great either. Either a beard or clean shaven–pick one.

One word: Yum.
** To MrMonkey, Jordan Catalano was a role that Jared Leto played on My So-Called Life…. my favorite show from high school days!


Um, he shaved. That’s a newsworthy story? I mean, the man looks good, but it must be a slow day in the newsroom!

I like the stubble. Either way he looks like Jesus Christ but its more pronounced with the full beard. I agree with the others, he needs a hair cut to go with his new stubble, maybe then the image of JC will be diminished.

Steacy on

Ugh. Babe alert.
